Dr. Banker is a true professional. He answered all my questions and explained in detail his procedures and what was expected. I am extremely pleased with his care. The follow up visits were equally professional and caring.

I was extremely nervous to see an Ophthalmologist, but Dr. Banker really gave me confidence and put my mind at ease. Dr. Banker did a very thorough examination, immediately figured out what was causing my issues, and took the time to explain my condition to me in a way that I could understand. I would highly recommend Dr. Banker to anyone in need of a great physician who will treat them right!

I was seen by Dr. Banker as an emergency. I was fit into the schedule the same day. He has the best bedside manner, wonderful office staff & is very thorough with explaining what was going on with my eyes. If it was not for him I would of ended up with a severe eye infection. I highly recommend him.

I went to Dr. Bankers with severe swelling and very limited vision in my right eye. Lots of eye drops and 3 months later, I have great vision and have been released. How many doctors will give you their cell phone number in case of emergency, well Dr. Bankers did. His staff is as caring and friendly as the doctor. I Highly recommend.

I could not be more pleased with Dr. Banker. Started seeing him 2 years ago for retina issues that culminated in surgery this past November. 6 months later I can see almost as well as before I developed the problem. All through this process Dr. Banker and his staff have been professional, personable, pleasant and accommodating, always ready to answer any questions I may have had. Dr. Banker showed true concern about any issues I had as well. As a retired RN of over 42 years, I am impressed with Dr.Banker's knowledge and expertise. I have and will continue to to recommend him.
